The second star has been eliminated from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2023 as a result of the public vote.
Italian jockey Frankie Dettori became the first campmate to go across the bridge on Sunday night, shocking his fellow campmates.
While Frankie was the first celebrity to be voted out, he was really the third star to leave camp after two others left on “medical grounds.”
Grace Dent of MasterChef was the first to walk, followed closely by Jamie Lynn Spears.
When Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly returned to camp on Monday evening, they revealed that YouTuber Nella Rose was the second talent removed.
The remainder of the camp was stunned, rushing for hugs as they said their final goodbyes.
Viewers were also taken aback, given that Nella, who only spent 17 days in camp, was routinely selected to undertake trials.
She did, however, frequently polarise fans, whether by withdrawing from the Bushtucker Trials or arguing with camp cook Fred Sirieix.
Nella spoke up about how she’s developed as a person in her farewell interview; she also discussed living with Nigel Farage, considering how they regularly disagreed on political issues and cultural appropriation.
Nella first stated that her jungle experience was ‘much scary’ than she had anticipated.
‘I thought it was gonna be light work. Just chuck me in there with a bunch of spiders, it’s gonna be fine! But it wasn’t,’ she laughed.
On what it was like to live with former UKIP leader Farage, Nella said: ‘I’m not usually put in situations where I’m around people who don’t have the same walk of life as me, so when we had different mindsets and I hear them, I’m shook ’cause I’m like, rah people think like this!
‘I automatically have to say something because, to me, it’s shocking sometimes.
‘I think Nigel’s an amazing person… until he speaks about what he really believes in and it’s like, “Oh nah, you’re a cool guy but why did you say that?”, It’s a sticky one, I can’t lie.’
Concerning her quarrel with First Dates star Fred, Nella stated that she disliked it when people brought up’sensitive things’ in the middle of an argument.
‘I didn’t understand why he would do that to somebody,’ she said.
Nella and Fred had a previous argument when she thought he was making fun of her late parents when he made a throwaway remark about being old enough to be her father.
Nella was so hurt by his comment that she refused to speak to Fred or even eat his meal for several days.
Nella has since stated that there was a’misunderstanding’ on her side, but she maintains that ‘things are so heightened in the jungle that everything is a big issue.’
The social media celebrity is now rooting for Made in Chelsea’s Sam Thompson to win, as she sees him as the ‘King of the Jungle.’
Viewers expected Nella to endure longer after her shocking dismissal on social media.
‘Camp gonna be boring without Nella but glad she going home to her loved ones…’, one person wrote on X, formerly Twitter.
Another penned: ‘considering it’s vote to save, i’m seriously shocked nella’s gone’.

The people shocked that Nella Rose is still in most definitely did not know who she was before the show, otherwise you would know she has a massive fan base and is love by many internationally. #ImaCeleb #Nellarose

Many people have also advocated for Nella to be properly cared for, considering the attention her signing received online and the bad thoughts many people had of her, which many have said originate from racial stereotypes.
‘I really hope Nella is okay when she sees the vitriol that’s been aimed at her on socials’, one person wrote.
Another agreed: ‘I hope Nella has a strong support system now that she’s out, she’s gonna need it when she hears what the British public have been saying. I wish her all the best.’
With Nella gone, there are just two women in camp: Josie Gibson and Danielle Harold, and six men: Sam, Farage, Fred, Tony Bellew, Marvin Humes, and Nick Pickard.
The voting lines have been reopened, and the third celebrity to be ousted will be announced on Tuesday night.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
